Abstract

Objective: The objective of this study was to describe characteristics and early outcomes across a large multicenter cohort undergoing coarctation or hypoplastic aortic arch repair. Methods: Patients undergoing coarctation or hypoplastic aortic arch repair (2006-2010) as their first cardiovascular operation in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons Congenital Heart Surgery Database were included. Group 1 patients consisted of those with coarctation or hypoplastic aortic arch without ventricular septal defect (coarctation or hypoplastic aortic arch, isolated); group 2, coarctation or hypoplastic aortic arch with ventricular septal defect (coarctation or hypoplastic aortic arch, ventricular septal defect); and group 3, coarctation or hypoplastic aortic arch with other major cardiac diagnoses (coarctation or hypoplastic aortic arch, other). Results: The cohort included 5025 patients (95 centers): group 1, 2705 (54%); group 2, 840 (17%); and group 3, 1480 (29%). Group 1 underwent coarctation or hypoplastic aortic arch repair at an older age than groups 2 and 3 (groups 1, 2, and 3, 75%, 99%, and 88%
